Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery is now a reality thanks to the pioneering work of Dr. Stephen Slade and his partner Dr. Richard Baker. On February 26, 2010, Dr. Slade performed the first cataract surgery in the United States using a femtosecond laser. LenSx Lasers, Inc. received the first laser clearance for cataract surgery by the FDA and selected Dr. Slade to perform the first procedure. Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery uses the femtosecond laser to do many of the steps currently performed by hand, and is designed to provide a greater level of precision and safety to modern cataract surgery.

“I have been involved in many new technology introductions, and I know from these past experiences that Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery, will be widely accepted by surgeons and demanded by patients all over the world,” said Dr. Slade after the procedure. “This is the cataract surgery that I would want for my friends, my family and myself.”

She told Dr. Slade, “This was an awesome experience, I didn’t feel a thing”. It gave me great confidence to know that my surgeon had the very latest laser technology for my cataract surgery.” Immediately after surgery, Lola asked, “can we do my other eye now?”
